This bridge is built over some rapids of the Adige River and is very picturesque, great for photography buffs like myself. It's within easy walking distance from the Ponte Castelvecchio.

To say it's Verona's oldest bridge it's nothing special. It's quite pretty when you walk across it into a court yard type street. Look out for the little moped parked up at the wall of one of the old buildings as you walk in, that's a photo waiting to be taken. As always plenty of eating places about. And the... More

Rebuilt after the Nazi demolition, a wonderful recreation of the past. Just by the extraordinary museum with very interesting contents

This mostly Roman bridge crosses the River Adige and is a wonderful place for picture-taking. No vehicular traffic, only pedestrians so you don't have to watch out for cars. Nice place to catch a breeze on a hot summer day.

Apparently the retreating Germans blew up this medieval bridge when retreating in 1945: the locals fished the rubble out of the river and pieced the bridge back together over the next 10 years. Worth the effort! On the north side, it's worth the effort to climb the steps to a terrace which has great views over Verona. On the south... More

The Ponte Pietra is a Roman arch bridge crossing the Adige on the North Eastern part of the old city of Verona. The Bridge was built in 100 BC and stood for over 2000 years until it was blown up by the retreating Nazis in April 1944 as a result only one of the original arches remain, that closest to... More

Spending a day in Verona, planned to go to Castel San Pietro, to get photographs looking over the city. Heading North from Piazza del Erbe signposted for Teatro Romano/ Castel San Pietro, came across this bridge. Walking through the arch the views of the castle and theatre catch your attention, but it is not until you cross the bridge and... More
